USB Stands For Universal Serial Bus
It can be up to 20 m in length
The length of the USB cable should be at least 1.5 m (60 inches). The length of the USB port is between 6 and 12 inches, so a long cord keeps your device within reach.
It has a maximum capacity of 4.7 GB
The USB flash drive has a maximum capacity of 4.7 gigabytes, which is the same as an audio CD and a VHS tape. It’s also the same as a DVD or an audio CD.
It is a magnetic storage device
A USB flash drive, also known as a thumb drive or pen drive, is a portable data storage device that plugs into your computer’s USB port and requires no external power supply. The USB flash drive is commonly seen with a capacity of 8 GB to 128 GB in size; however, there are larger sizes available up to 1 TB (1,000 GB).
The term “flash” refers to the fact that the memory chips used in these devices have no moving parts like hard drives and have relatively fast access times.
It has estimated lifetime reliability of 10,000 cycles
TLC drives are generally considered to have average lifetime reliability of 10,000 cycles. To put this in perspective, let’s consider the following scenarios:
- The average desktop PC has a hard drive that requires approximately 1 write per day. So over the course of its lifetime (about 5 years), the hard drive will experience 500 million writes.
- If you’re writing to your USB flash drive once every day for five years and you have estimated lifetime reliability of 10,000 cycles, then under these conditions your USB flash drive would last about 50 years with no problems at all!
There is more than one right answer, but any answer will do
You might not have realized it, but you’ve probably used a USB stand at one point. It could be any of the things listed below:
- A USB flash drive
- A USB hub
- A USB storage device (like an external hard drive or thumb drive)
- A card reader that allows you to plug in your camera’s SD card and transfer pictures right off of it without having to connect anything directly to your laptop or computer.
